Right.  Random girl randomly crawling over a random pile of wood where,  good lord, a random pile of bullets were found randomly drilled into a random pile of random wood.

Give me a break.  This was a setup from the start, and if you take little miss random into a random room and ask her random questions, she'll break down and tell you daddy was involved.

Ten bucks says the little girls were related to the perps.

Let's not forget that if this log had made it into the fire, when these rounds' propellant ignited, it would have done so in the middle of a pile of burning wood. So rather than slugs spraying out like they were fired from a machine gun, we instead have an expanding cloud of burning wood fragments...

DarkVader: It's hard to tell the scale from the photo.  It's almost like they didn't want us to figure out what it really is.


Yeah, they should have been more specific when they wrote "they found a 20-centimetre-long branch buried in the heap"

TheMega: Hmmmm.. appears to 7.62x54.. yes, some did actually get manufactured for a machine gun. Majority did not.. but, by all means, let's go with machine gun ammo even tho those are obviously not machine gun ammo. And, that's an assault log, too!!!!!

It is a tragedy when people do not get the right names,  maybe one day as a nation we'll all be able to identify the caliber by the sound it makes being fired into a large crowd but sadly due to the liberal opression of gun rights, this day may not come.

It's obviously a beautiful metaphor for the Easter holiday. Live ammunition emerging from dead wood. It's clear as day and you people have twisted minds for thinking otherwise.

illannoyin: How is it machine gun ammo? Do machine guns take special ammo that can't be used in other types of guns of the same caliber?

/Asking for scientific reasons


C'mon, of course it is. It's jn the "ASSAULT RIFLE" ammo catagory and it's only used in mass killings and to kill children. They should ban it cause there's no reason anyone needs machine gun ammo. No one hunts with machine gun ammo.

It's not 7.62x54R, since it's not rimmed. Judging by the size of the casing and the bullet, and the fact that it looks to be relatively old surplus ammo, and the fact that this is in Germany, I'm going with 8mm (7.92x57) Mauser.

Which most certainly was used in machine guns, such as the MG34 and MG42, but was originally a rifle cartridge. Although to be fair, all light machine guns fire rifle cartridges. That's one of the main reasons they're classified as machine guns, and not submachine guns.

Those bullets look like they belong to a ghost 30 caliber magazine AK-47 Assault Glock!

Heh... "machine gun cartridges". I guess it sound more ominous, though, than 'surplus Soviet-era ammo.'

Anything to get a click.

"Nane"?

"Nane"???


In German, it's considered a short form of Christiane   http://www.babynames.ch/Info/Name/naNane
While in the Nordic countries it's a variant of "Nanna"

The perp and the cops have seen too many movies. Throwing live rounds in a fire does not have the same effect as firing them from a rifle.

It was due to be lit the next day, potentially igniting the cartridges and causing disaster.

Without a barrel to contain pressure, probably not a  disaster,really.

Yes and if she had accidentally set them if fit would have been Innane.
